Integrating Enablers

One common trend we see at the National Training Center (NTC) that is an across the board trend (not just signal) is something we call integrating enablers. Enablers are a specialized capability which is not organic to the unit, but provided on an as needed basis for the unit to complete its mission. When we talk about “integrating enablers” in general we are normally talking about how did we plan for, utilize, and control these specialized resources. From a network perspective, enablers can present challenges to an inexperienced Net Tech.
